You, big lady, were the only Disney character who ever looked like me.

And while you may not have had the waistline of a princess,

I'll be god-damned if you didn't have the rolling swagger of a queen.

You made back fat look fucking sexy.

You made living in this body feel a little less like a curse.

I don't want you cut down into bite-sized pieces,

You weren't easy to swallow for a reason.

(the above are just some highlights...the whole thing is great)

ETA: the poet, Melissa May, has a book coming out soon that includes this piece, and it's called Sparklefat. I know what's going on my birthday wishlist.
